- Today PlayStation 3 developer modrobert
has dumped the PS3 4K unit memory and initiated a project that aims to implement PlayStation 3 4K Custom Firmware (CFW) on PS3 Super Slim (4K) models with details below.
To quote: "After releasing 3k3y firmware v2.11 beta (with OFW 4.55 support) and losing interest in the ODE "cat & mouse" game with Sony (OFW 4.60 and 4.65), I have spent the past few weeks researching and dumping raw data in an ongoing project to extract lv0.2 keys via bootldr.
What is required to install CFW on PS3 Super Slim (4k)?
- Added lv0.2 to the crypto chain diagram which is how it works on PS3 Super Slim (4k).
NEW consoles only: metadata lv0.2 (signed with nonrandomfail key) is used to check lv0 integrity.
As I figured it (please correct me if I'm wrong) we need the keys for lv0.2 which are held by bootldr. Some claim that bootldr is "Per Console Encrypted at factory", but I have my doubts about that, either way, as long as we can get that key on one specific console it is enough for our purpose. More on that later.
What it boils down to is this (using CORE_OS data from OFW 4.65 in this test case)...
